ArtTrends Gallery will be hosting Ella Cart, and her newest collection “Stems and Petals”, as its featured exhibition from October 10th to November 20th. The opening reception, on Thursday, October 12th from 4-7 pm, will be held during the St. Simons Art Crawl. Ella Cart, one of the founding members of ArtTrends Gallery, is a nationally renowned artist, known for her ethereal landscapes and billowing clouds. For this exhibition, Ella Cart will be displaying her never-before seen collection inspired by the beauty and wildness of flowers.
“For this show, I wanted to concentrate on something different. When looking throughout my studio, I realized that among my many paintings of landscapes were florals. Many of these are mixed media pieces, as well as oils. I realized that these florals truly reflect who I am as an artist, and my creative journey. Artists are often told to stick with one medium, which is something I rebel against. It is the creative process that I am after, and working in both oils and mixed media provides that constant creative challenge.”
This exhibition will interest anyone who appreciates the creative process of a fine artist and the beauty of our natural surroundings. Art Trends Gallery, “the gallery with the orange door” at 3305 Frederica Road, is pleased to host this special celebration of Ella Cart’s new artwork as a special feature of this fall’s edition of the St. Simons Art Crawl.
